The Arnold Expedition Historical Society is a 501(c)3 corporation established in 1973 in anticipation of the bicentenniel of the expedition in 1975. It then organized and carried out the only large-scale reenactment of the “March to Quebec” ever undertaken. Today, the society owns land and historic easements along the route of the expedition including a camp on Middle Carry Pond for use by members. The society also maintains hiking trails along the route of the expedition and works to collect and document information about the expedition and its participants, including the preservation of artifacts. The headquarters of the AEHS is the Major Reuben Colburn House in Pittston, Maine a Maine State Historic Site leased to the society.

New Interpretive Sign

DSCN1183The Arnold Expedition Historical Society has erected a new trail sign at West Carry Pond on Arnold Point.


On 16 May members of the Society gathered for trail clearing along the Arnold Trail from the Kennebec River to West Carry Pond. This maintenance happens every spring to help keep the Trail clean and user friendly through the summer months. Every season we always strive to refresh our signage and add new signs that will enhance the overall education of the public as they hike these trails.
